Let Us See Item Tally in Other Career: 60 Support

28 May 2017, 12:11 am (Edited 5 Dec 2018, 8:05 pm)
It's a bit annoying to have to set my villagers to a career just to see how many more of something is needed for a recipe. If you don't know what I mean, here's an example:

My villager Genie has Explorer, Tailor, and Crafter for careers. I want to keep her mostly in the explorer career so she can help gather the materials she needs for recipes in her other two careers. After some hours worth of explores (let's say 5 hours, for a total of 100 explore turns), I want to know how many more things she needs for a costume. I have to switch her to Tailor just to see how many items are left to meet the patternbook's requirements. If there's still more things needed, she can't make the costume, therefore, she is going to be in that career for no reason and now has to miss the next hour's explore turns.

If she is in Explore and I go to her Tailor career page and click a recipe, it simply bumps me back to the top of the page upon clicking it. How about instead, it lets you see the recipe's item tally like it normally would, but put '*insert villager name* is currently not in this career'. Like how when you're crafting something and you attempt to craft again, but it says 'this villager is busy'. Being that it let's you see the tally of ingredients of medicines while your villager is already crafting one, it would be great if this could be done too. ^_^

Edit: Also, this suggestion by zaffy2005 :

To be able to teach new schemas, blueprints, and other such recipe items to a villager who has the relevant career without having to make that their "active" career just to do it.

yesssss
especially for medicines and food, since my herbalists and cook/doctor have to both switch out of 2hrs worth of exploring (or just 1 if I time it right, but with the terrible plush drop rates this event even that's a lot... and still a minimum 40 explore turns) if I don't have enough of a certain plant. or for smithing/crafting/etc, if I'm missing just one or two of a restock item I can't buy in user shops, that's 20-40 turns, again, I'm missing out on for nothing.

I play mobile 95% of the time, so having 3+ tabs open for checking the item, searching it to find the ingredients, and then hunting my inventory for the items, while going back and forth to see if the numbers match, while possible, is a maaaajor pain and, honestly, waste of time when there's already a perfectly good system that just requires one click (the "villager is busy" message)

You could always look at the patterns museum entry and how much you have of each in your inventory?

Yes, I hate missing out on my turns, it feels so wasteful! X3

True, but depending on how many things are listed, that is terribly inconvenient. XD

yeah, and a time/mobile data sink to boot :p
It just seems so wasteful when they already have a working system not to just make use of it.

Yes please! This is annoying.
And when you have a large inventory (and slow internet connection) with no search function in the inventory to look for what you need, it's a pain!

Oh gosh, yes! D: Imagine my suffering when I need something that starts with 'w' and my inventory has several of each species of cloud and snow minipet. XD

You don't actually have to switch careers, you can just click.
Career -> View All
Career icon -> Click on recipe

That is exactly what I do. Clicking the recipe only bumps me to the top of the page. If your villager is currently doing another career, recipes of other careers they have do nothing but that. :T

Same issue as Krimson too, it just doesn't do the bumping thing for me, it literally does nothing at all. XD I've started going to the cookery shop just to see my coin count towards a costume instead of digging for 10 years in my inventory.

I have to sacrifice my warrior's career just to keep eye on those dang candycorns for the spooky costume

I have to keep memorizing how many it needs before I stop explorer grinding

Yes you can see and check the item via item search of the career itself without switching but it's a bit cumbersome to go back and forth, only to realized I have 10 regants short

You can search a recipe in the item museum and it lists all the necessary ingredients and quantities. Just subtract the quantities in your inventory from the list of requirements you find there.

yes theres ways around it by just calculating it yourself by looking in your inventory and the item museum but the point here is that its SUPPOSED to work one way and its not. thats a bug that needs to be fixed.

when you try click the item while not in that career its missing the redirect that would normally give the popup; hence the # with nothing after it. its not an uncommon problem on sites, but its still a problem.

yeah, it's really not user friendly and make navigation very tedious... =/ Doesn't help that they keep releasing more and more dumb items (looking at you useless recoloured warrior reagents) and just argh... it's so hard to hunt things down in my inventory....
